How to Create Successful Markets Training Course

Project for Public Spaces

Please join Project for Public Spaces in this one and a half day workshop led by our own public market experts Steve Davies and David O'Neil. Cities and towns across the US are rediscovering the benefits of public markets.

At this workshop you'll:
* Learn how to start a market in your neighborhood or town;
* Look at case studies and explore the market planning process, including goal-setting, concept development, economic feasibility, management, site selection and design;
* Visit and analyze some of New York's most famous markets;
* Meet other folks from around the country working on a variety of public market projects

Sign up now and join a small, dynamic group of people, who have included mayors, planning officials, community development officials, neighborhood organizers and market sponsors.
